kernel compile questions

1. Can I build a current 32 bit kernel on a 13.37 32 bit system? Didn't think so...can you point me to what I need to change to do so (if simple)?

2. Can I build a current 64 bit kernel on a 32 bit system?

Thanks for pointers.

Looks like I can, but I was concerned about libs being different. Again, pointers are welcome. Thanks.

1. Yes you can. Download the SlackBuild for -Current and run it on 13.37. It will be fine and it will be linked against the libraries you have on 13.37, not in -Current

The kernel does not use any libraries from the userspace.
